One of Canada’s most prominent musical exports, Tegan & Sara return with their seventh studio album Heartthrob - and as was indicative of lead single ‘Closer’ upon its release last September, and the several preview tracks that surfaced in the interim, they’ve developed an even stronger penchant for synth-pop since 2009’s Sainthood. With an illustrious career spanning over 13 years, Tegan & Sara’s star has been continually on the rise since the release of their global breakthrough album So Jealous back in 2004 - The Con subsequently brought even more critical and commercial acclaim their way in 2007, and the aforementioned Sainthood cemented them as a serious musical force, picking up a nomination for the prestigious Polaris Prize in the process (the Canuck’s equivalent of Ireland’s Choice Music or the UK’s Mercury Music Prize). The Quin Twins have further infiltrated the mainstream through regular sync placements with television juggernauts such as Grey’s Anatomy and 90210, and collaborating with global superstar DJs Tiesto and David Guetta.
